Overview

Manu National Park 3 Days

Manu national park 3 days, is one of the most Bio-diverse Regions of the Country and in the world.  Located in the Amazon it’s the main water source consists of the entire drainage basin of the Manu River. There are few human settlements near or around the park.  The Peruvian Government does not permit hunting or fishing. Bio-Tourism is strictly controlled and visitors are only allowed into the park if accompanied by a registered guide related to a registered tour company. Tours must be organized in advance and the majority of the registered offices operate from the City of Cusco. It’s also possible to organize tours from Lima or abroad.  However, all operators work with one of the eleven official operators allowed into the Manu National  Park  3 Days. It is possible to visit the Manu area without entering the reserved zone, and still be able to enjoy the abundant wildlife.

 Manu reserve consists of two zones: the Manu National Park 3 Days, which can only be entered by professional biologists with a special permit; and the Manu Reserved Zone, which can be entered by tourists, but only with an organized tour. There are buffer zones around the park, often referred to as the Cultural Zone, although this is no official protection for this area. The Manu National Park covers 1,534,865 hectares, and the Manu Reserved Zone has another 270,000 hectares. Manu contains 12 different ecological zones ranging in altitude from 300m to 5,000m, meaning that it has an incredible variety of flora and fauna. wildlife

In 2000, almost 3,000 visitors entered the Manu reserved zone compared with 20,000 who visited the Puerto Maldonado spot. Although there are no official limits on the number of tourists, the expense of visiting Manu means that numbers are self-limiting. Additionally, companies are strictly controlled and are only allowed to visit certain parts of the reserved zone, and even then only allowed in for three days at a time.

Tours to  Manu National Park 3 Days,s zone are expensive, ranging from about $500 for the cheapest, taking the bus in and out, to almost $2,000 when staying in one of the lodges. The reason for this is that the transport costs are expensive due to the distances involved… However, it is sometimes possible to get discounts on official prices. If an agency has a tour leaving in a day or two and still has spaces, it may be willing to offer a discount to try and fill a place. It can be worth shopping around the see if this is the case.
